Went for early bird on Thursday evening. 23 Euro for 2 courses including a glass of wine.

I got the the goats cheese bonbons and mushroom pasta.
Partner got chickens skewers for starts and salmon for main. Very high standard of food and presentation.

Place was very busy. Good atmosphere in the place. Enough staff to handle it and they were very pleasant.

Got two 2 pints of beer and total was 60 Euro. Very good value.

Only complaint would be that I could only swap a glass of wine for a glass of beer (pint is the same price of a glass of wine).

Was here to meet two friends for a coffee. We had a coffee each and they had a scone each. Went to pay and they tried to charge for four coffees and three scones. So, be careful. Coffee and scones were nice.

It was a Saturday late breakfast/kinda lunch!
We could not get thro' on the phone, so when we arrived the inevitable "have you got a reservation?" was acted out at the door. "You might have to wait a bit .... unless you woukd like to sit there" pointing at the high table (stools) near the bar area? Looks OK. So "OK".
Very prompt service. We ordered a prawn salad and a poached egg and (Irish) bacon breakfast with tomatoes, some green leaves and three pieces (small) of toast. I asked to drop the guacamole and was give a nice little pot of relish instead. Some skinny chips were also ordered which came in a little 'bucket' thing.
We ordered a prosecco and a craft IPA. More butter ... no problem and very quick. Some salt and pepper please? Almost instant. All friendly and helpful staff.
The prawn salad was tasty with plenty of prawns. The breakfast was generally OK but the poached eggs must have been left standing for a little while and, while tasty, were tepid heading for cold.
Otherwise it was a quite pleasant, somewhat noisey Saturday late miday breakfast / brunch.
Our first visit....but we will certainly give it a weekday try, and if that checks out, we will try the evening dinner menu.
Prices are reasonable.
